Paper Abstract

The use of the tomographic scanning (TOSCA) imaging technique is presented, and improvements using a rotating aperture are presented. The TOSCA imaging technique is based on tomographic imaging principles applied to the output from a conical scan reticle system, and allows for a simple, low cost system consisting of simple scanning optics, a single element detector and a signal-processing unit to act as an imaging sensor. Potential applications of the TOSCA seeker include missile seekers, smart munitions, and other devices using low-cost imagers.
